About

What is exploitation of the nude human body and when does it come into play?

I believe as artists we come across this question every day, and we have to ask ourselves if whatever it is we are dealing with exploitation of our beliefs or art? It is a fine line that artists such as you or I walk repetitively throughout our lives and careers deciding for ourselves the answer. And it is a vital one that needs answering because it affects our work as artists and the world that we live in as humans.

The purpose for this project is creating questions through the art of comparison and opinion. I have come together with Anna Utopia Giordano, who has agreed to be my mentor for this project, in order to gather various artists to join in on comparing the nudes of history. We want to gather different opinions and perspectives on the topic of the human nude because there is so much to be said.

We want artists to come together to create an artistic team that researches and uncovers the intention behind the human body in dance, literature, photography, film, music, theater, media and many other art forms that can be compared, contrasted and questioned. Which forms stand by the idea that “sex sells” and which forms don’t?

We can let the public decide as we uncover nude forms that are the same but yet so different. All of the research for Naked Truths will be presented in a gallery opening in June that showcases our research, art, and performances that has been inspired by this project. Be a part of uncovering the different meanings of the human nude and let your opinions be voiced and heard.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges Naked Truths faces comes within the unique content the we are exploring. Confronting the images of the female nude in a contemporary context is a topic that will raise a spectrum of ideas and opinions. Ultimately we hope that through the controversial text we can create a platform that fosters a dialogue of change, particularly in how the female nude is viewed and displayed in our contemporary culture.
